The Download: Hot for the Holidays - Boosted Rev Scooter, Scosche FlyTunes, Google Pixel 4
The holiday shopping season is officially underway, and News 12's gadget guru Andrew Ehinger has great gift ideas for all the tech-lovers on your list! He's counting down the top 10 gifts that tech lovers say are hot for the 2019 holiday season. Here are picks four through two.
At gift No. 4 is the Boosted Rev Scooter. It's one of the toughest electric scooters around. Its large tires and 45-pound frame may be heavy, but that helps it remain stable on uneven city streets. What also separates the Rev from other scooters is its power - it has dual motors for a top speed of 24 mph.
Got some expensive Bluetooth headphones? They may not work with all of your devices. But gift No. 3 can solve your problem. The Scosche FlyTunes dongle allows you to wirelessly connect with the headphone jack of the digital device that doesn't have Bluetooth. Frequent fliers love it since it works with single or dual jack onboard entertainment systems. It also allows two headphones to connect at the same time.
There are a lot of smartphones to choose from - but when it comes to the camera Google's Pixel 4 may have the edge. The software allows the flagship android phone to take some pretty amazing photos, especially in low light without a flash. Gift No. 2 even has legendary photographers like Annie Leibovitz embracing the smartphone. The powerful new Pixel 4 also has a telephoto zoom lens, fantastic looking screen, plus the ability to control it without even touching it.
